Buyer and the Company will cooperate in arranging for such repayment and the Company shall take such actions as may be necessary to facilitate such repayment and to facilitate the release, in connection with such repayment, of any Lien securing such Closing Indebtedness Amounts.

(b) At the Closing, Buyer shall pay or cause to be paid in full, on behalf of the Company or its Subsidiaries, as applicable, the Transaction Expenses (to the extent not paid by the Company prior to the Closing) as set forth in a certificate delivered by the Company to Buyer, by wire transfer of immediately available funds, or through the Company's payroll to the extent such Transaction Expenses are compensatory and paid to a current or former Company service provider, to the applicable accounts and parties set forth on such certificate. Such certificate shall be delivered by the Company to Buyer at least three (3) Business Days prior to the Closing and will be accompanied by invoices or other supporting documentation to evidence the Transaction Expenses set forth therein.

(c) At the Closing, Buyer shall deliver or cause to be delivered to the Escrow Agent, cash equal to the Adjustment Escrow Amount, to be held in an escrow account solely for purposes of adjustments to the Closing Consideration (the 'Adjustment Escrow Account'), by wire transfer of immediately available funds to an account or accounts designated in writing by the Escrow Agent.

(f) The Closing Consideration shall be paid to the Securityholders following the Closing by the Payment Agent in accordance with Section 2.8, the Allocation Schedule and the Payment Agent Agreement which shall give effect to the terms of, and is in accordance with, the Company LLC Agreement.

Section 2.6 Purchase Price Adjustment.

(a) At least three (3) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Company shall deliver to Buyer a written statement (the 'Estimated Closing Statement') setting forth (i) its good faith estimate of (A) Closing Working Capital ('Estimated Working Capital'), (B) Closing Cash ('Estimated Closing Cash'), (C) Closing Indebtedness Amount (the 'Estimated Closing Indebtedness'), and (D) Transaction Expenses (the 'Estimated Transaction Expenses'), and (ii) based on the foregoing, the resulting Closing Consideration and the Company's good faith calculation of the Estimated Adjustment Amount (along with reasonable supporting documentation).

(b) No later than seventy-five (75) days after the Closing Date, the Buyer shall deliver to the Seller Representative a written statement (the 'Buyer Closing Statement') setting forth Buyer's good faith calculation of (i) Closing Working Capital ('Buyer Closing Working Capital'), (ii) Closing Cash ('Buyer Closing Cash'), (iii) Closing Indebtedness Amount ('Buyer Closing Indebtedness'), (iv) Transaction Expenses (the 'Buyer Transaction Expenses') and (v) based on the

20

foregoing, the resulting Closing Consideration and Buyer's good faith calculation of the Final Adjustment Amount. From the delivery of the Buyer Closing Statement until the determination of Final Closing Working Capital, Final Closing Cash, Final Closing Indebtedness and Final Transaction Expenses in accordance with this Section 2.6, Buyer will provide, and cause the Company and its Subsidiaries to provide, the Seller Representative with reasonable access (during normal business hours and upon reasonable prior notice) to (i) the books, records, personnel, accountants and other relevant financial and other information of the Company and its Subsidiaries, and (ii) copies of all work papers of their independent accountants in each case, to the extent reasonably necessary to complete their review of the Buyer Closing Statement; provided, however, that the independent accountants of the Surviving Company shall not be obligated to make any working papers available to the Seller Representative unless and until the Seller Representative has signed a customary confidentiality agreement and a release letter relating to such access to working papers in form and substance reasonably acceptable to such independent accountant. Buyer shall not amend, supplement or modify the Buyer Closing Statement following its delivery to the Seller Representative without the written consent of the Seller Representative.

(c) If Buyer fails to deliver the Buyer Closing Statement within five (5) Business Days following the Seller Representative's delivery of written notice to Buyer of its failure to deliver the Buyer Closing Statement in accordance with Section 2.6(b), (A) Buyer will provide, and cause the Company and its Subsidiaries to provide, the Seller Representative with reasonable access (during normal business hours and upon reasonable prior notice) to (x) the books, Records, employees, consultants, accountants and personnel of the Company and its Subsidiaries, and (y) the financial and other information, as of the Closing Date, of the Company and its Subsidiaries and (B) then, at the Seller Representative's election, either (i) the Estimated Closing Statement, including the Company's calculation of the Closing Consideration set forth therein, shall be final and binding upon Buyer and the Securityholders or (ii) the Seller Representative shall submit the Estimated Closing Statements to the Accounting Firm, together with a notice specifying those items or amounts therein as to which the Seller Representative disagrees and the Seller Representative's resulting calculation of the Closing Consideration, and shall cause the Accounting Firm to promptly review this Agreement and such items or amounts for the purpose of calculating the Closing Consideration; provided, that with respect to Buyer's obligations pursuant to the foregoing clause (A), (1) neither Buyer nor the Company shall be required to provide access to any information that based on advice of the Company's or Buyer's counsel, would violate applicable Law or fiduciary standards, or would destroy attorney client privilege and (2) no independent accountant of the Surviving Company shall be obligated to make any working papers available to the Seller Representative unless and until the Seller Representative has signed a customary confidentiality agreement and a release letter relating to such access to working papers in form and substance reasonably acceptable to such independent accountant. The Accounting Firm's review and report pursuant to the immediately preceding clause (ii) shall be performed in accordance with the applicable provisions of Section 2.6(d), mutatis mutandis, except that the Accounting Firm's review shall be limited to those items or amounts specified in the Seller Representative's notice delivered pursuant to the immediately preceding clause (ii), and shall be based solely on written or oral materials, presentations and arguments submitted and/or made by the Seller Representative.

(d) If Buyer timely delivers the Buyer Closing Statement in accordance with Section 2.6(b), the Seller Representative may dispute the calculation of Buyer Closing Working Capital, Buyer Closing Cash, Buyer Closing Indebtedness, and/or Buyer Transaction Expenses by notifying Buyer of such disagreement in writing (a 'Notice of Objection'), within forty-five (45) days after the Seller Representative's receipt of the Buyer Closing Statement. The Notice of Objection shall set forth in reasonable detail each item that the Seller Representative disputes and the rationale for such objection and resulting proposed calculation (to the extent it can be reasonably calculated based on the information then available); provided, that (i) in no event shall the Seller Representative submit more than one (1) Notice of Objection and (ii) any items not raised in the Notice of Objection shall be final, binding and conclusive for all purposes hereunder. In the event that the Seller Representative does not provide a Notice of Objection

21

within such forty-five (45) day period, the Securityholders shall be deemed to have accepted the Buyer Closing Statement delivered by Buyer and Buyer's calculation of Buyer Closing Working Capital, Buyer Closing Cash, Buyer Closing Indebtedness and Buyer Transaction Expenses set forth therein, which shall then be final, binding and conclusive for all purposes hereunder. In the event any Notice of Objection is timely delivered, Buyer and the Seller Representative shall use their commercially reasonable efforts for a period of thirty (30) days (or such longer period as they may agree in writing) to resolve any disagreements set forth in the Notice of Objection. For purposes of the resolution process, other than with respect to any updates to the Parties' respective calculations to reflect any disputed items conclusively resolved in writing by the Parties within thirty (30) days after the delivery of the Notice of Objection to Buyer (or such longer period as they may agree in writing), neither Buyer nor the Seller Representative may change its calculations from the amounts proposed in the Buyer Closing Statement (with respect to Buyer) and the Notice of Objection (with respect to the Seller Representative) without the other party's written consent. If Buyer and the Seller Representative are unable to resolve such items in dispute (the 'Unresolved Items') by the end of such period then, at any time thereafter, either the Seller Representative or Buyer may require that the Accounting Firm resolve the Unresolved Items. For the avoidance of doubt, the Accounting Firm shall only resolve the Unresolved Items and not any disagreements that have been resolved by the Parties. In connection with engaging the Accounting Firm, each of Buyer and the Seller Representative agrees, if requested by the Accounting Firm, to work with the Accounting Firm to negotiate and execute an engagement letter on terms reasonably satisfactory to both Buyer and the Seller Representative. Buyer and the Seller Representative shall instruct the Accounting Firm to determine as promptly as practicable, and in any event within thirty (30) days after the date on which such dispute is referred to the Accounting Firm, based solely on the provisions of and definitions contained in this Agreement and the written and oral presentations by the Seller Representative and Buyer, and not on an independent review, whether and to what extent (if any) the calculations of Closing Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness Amount and/or Transaction Expenses (including the components thereof) require adjustment; provided, however, that in resolving any Unresolved Item, the Accounting Firm may not assign a value to any item greater than the greatest value of such item claimed by Buyer or the Seller Representative or less than the smallest value for such item claimed by either Buyer or the Seller Representative. The fees and expenses of the Accounting Firm shall be allocated between Buyer, on the one hand, and the Securityholders in accordance with the Allocation Schedule (which may be paid by the Seller Representative out of the Seller Representative Holdback Amount), on the other hand, based upon the percentage which the portion of the contested amount not awarded to each party bears to the amount actually contested by such party. For example, should the items in dispute total in amount to $1,000 and the Accounting Firm awards $600 in favor of the Seller Representative's position, 60% of the costs payable to the Accounting Firm would be borne by Buyer and 40% of the costs would be borne by the Seller Representative (for the account of the Securityholders). The determination of the Accounting Firm shall be set forth in a written statement delivered to the Seller Representative and Buyer and shall be final, conclusive and binding on the Parties. The determination of the Accounting Firm shall be fully enforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. The date on which Closing Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness Amount and Transaction Expenses are finally determined in accordance with this Section 2.6(d) is hereinafter referred to as the 'Adjustment Determination Date.'.

(e) 'Final Closing Working Capital', 'Final Closing Cash', 'Final Closing Indebtedness', and 'Final Transaction Expenses' respectively, shall mean (i) if Buyer does not timely deliver the Buyers Closing Statement in accordance with Section 2.6(b) and Section 2.6(c), the Company's calculation of the Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness Amount and Transaction Expenses, in each case, set forth in the Estimated Closing Statement, or the Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness Amount and Transaction Expenses, in each case, as determined by the Accounting Firm pursuant to Section 2.6(c), as applicable, based on the Seller Representative's election in accordance with Section 2.6(c); (ii) if Buyer timely delivers the Buyer Closing Statement in accordance with Section 2.6(b), and the Seller Representative does not deliver any Notice of Objection within forty-five (45) days

22

after receipt of the Buyer Closing Statement, Buyer's calculation of the Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness Amount and Transaction Expenses, in each case, set forth in the Buyer Closing Statement; or (iii) if Buyer timely delivers the Buyer Closing Statement in accordance with Section 2.6(b), and the Seller Representative does deliver a Notice of Objection within forty-five (45) days after receipt of the Buyer Closing Statement, (A) the Closing Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness Amount and Transaction Expenses, in each case, as agreed by Buyer and the Seller Representative pursuant to Section 2.6(d) or (B) in the absence of such agreement, the Closing Working Capital, Closing Cash, Closing Indebtedness Amount and Transaction Expenses, in each case, as determined by the Accounting Firm pursuant to Section 2.6(d).

(f) If the Final Adjustment Amount is greater than the Estimated Adjustment Amount (the amount of such excess, the 'Upward Adjustment Amount'), then within five (5) Business Days after the Adjustment Determination Date, (i) Buyer shall pay or cause to be paid to the Payment Agent an amount in cash equal to the Upward Adjustment Amount, which shall be distributed to the Securityholders in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Payment Agent Agreement, and (ii) Buyer and the Seller Representative shall deliver joint written instructions to the Escrow Agent to cause to be paid to the Payment Agent all funds remaining in the Adjustment Escrow Account for further distribution to the Securityholders in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the Escrow Agreement and the Payment Agent Agreement; provided, however, that in no event shall Buyer be required to pay an amount pursuant to the immediately foregoing clause (i), individually or in the aggregate, in excess of an amount equal to the Adjustment Escrow Amount in respect of such Upward Adjustment Amount.

(g) If the Final Adjustment Amount is less than the Estimated Adjustment Amount (the amount of such deficit, the 'Downward Adjustment Amount'), then within two (2) Business Days after the Adjustment Determination Date, Buyer and the Seller Representative shall deliver joint written instructions to the Escrow Agent to (i) release to Buyer from the Adjustment Escrow Account an amount of cash equal to the lesser of (A) the Downward Adjustment Amount and (B) the amount then available in the Adjustment Escrow Account and (ii) release to the Payment Agent all funds remaining in the Adjustment Escrow Account after the distribution described in subclause (i), if any, for further distribution to the Securityholders in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, the Escrow Agreement and the Payment Agent Agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, the Adjustment Escrow Account shall be the Buyer Parties' sole source of recourse in respect of the Downward Adjustment Amount (if any), and no Securityholder or any other Person shall have any liability to either Buyer Party, the Surviving Company or any other Person in respect of the Downward Adjustment Amount (if any) in excess of the amounts held in the Adjustment Escrow Account.

(h) The Parties agree and acknowledge that any payment pursuant to Section 2.6(f) or Section 2.6(g) above will be treated by the Parties as an adjustment to the Closing Consideration, including for all Tax purposes (to the extent permitted by Law).

(i) Following the Closing, any action taken by the Buyer Parties, the Company or the Company's Subsidiaries with respect to the accounting books and records of any of the Company or its Subsidiaries on which the Buyer Closing Statement is to be based that is inconsistent with the Company or its Subsidiaries' past practices will not have any effect on the determination made pursuant to Section 2.6(b), Section 2.6(c) or Section 2.6(d).

Section 2.7 Allocation Schedule and Preliminary Documents.

(a) At least three (3) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, the Seller Representative will prepare and deliver to the Buyer, (i) a schedule (the 'Allocation Schedule') setting forth all of the following information: (A) the portion of the Closing Consideration to which each

23

Securityholder is entitled, (B) such Securityholder's pro rata portion of the Adjustment Escrow Amount, and (C) such Securityholder's pro rata portion of the Seller Representative Holdback Amount, in each case along with the underlying formulae to calculate such amounts in accordance with the Company LLC Agreement and (ii) a funds flow memorandum setting forth payment instructions and call back information with respect to each payment to be made pursuant to this Agreement by or for the benefit of the Company on the Closing Date (the 'Funds Flow'), together with the applicable wire instructions set forth in the Funds Flow, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to Buyer. In the event that the Seller Representative determines that any amounts on Allocation Schedule change between the date of the Allocation Schedule's delivery and the Effective Time, the Seller Representative shall deliver a revised Allocation Schedule to Buyer and Merger Sub, along with a certification of an authorized officer of the Seller Representative as to the accuracy of the revised Allocation Schedule, in a form reasonably acceptable to Buyer, which shall automatically, without further action on behalf of the Parties hereto, replace the previously delivered Allocation Schedule for all purposes hereunder.

(b) The Seller Representative shall consider in good faith any of Buyer's reasonable comments to the Estimated Closing Statement, Allocation Schedule and/or Funds Flow, and such Estimated Closing Statement, Allocation Schedule and/or Funds Flow shall be modified to reflect any revisions mutually agreed upon by the Seller Representative and Buyer. For the avoidance of doubt, in the event that the Seller Representative and Buyer do not mutually agree to modify any of Estimated Closing Statement, Allocation Schedule and/or Funds Flow, then the Estimated Closing Statement, Allocation Schedule and/or Funds Flow initially delivered by the Seller Representative shall be, subject to Section 2.6, final for purposes of the Closing and the amounts payable in connection therewith.

(c) The Allocation Schedule delivered to Buyer pursuant to this Section 2.7 shall be deemed definitive with respect to the allocation of the Closing Consideration and, to the extent applicable, any Additional Payment, among the Securityholders, in each case, in accordance with this Agreement and the disbursement thereof, and shall be binding on the Company and the Securityholders. Buyer, Merger Sub, Escrow Agent, Payment Agent and, after the Closing, the Surviving Company, shall be entitled to rely on the Allocation Schedule with respect to the amounts allocated and payable to the Securityholders and former holders of Restricted Units as set forth thereon (through delivery of funds to the Escrow Agent and Payment Agent pursuant to and in accordance with this Agreement). None of Buyer, Merger Sub, Escrow Agent, Payment Agent and, after the Closing, the Surviving Company shall have any Liabilities to any Person, including any Securityholder or former holder of Restricted Units, for any inaccuracy, error, or omission in the Allocation Schedule, or any action taken in reliance thereon. Notwithstanding anything contained in this Agreement to the contrary, to the extent any payment is to be made by Buyer or the Surviving Company to the Escrow Agent, the Payment Agent or the Seller Representative on behalf of or for the benefit of any Securityholder or any former holder of Restricted Units, including any payments made pursuant to Sections 2.5, 2.6(f) or 2.8(c), if such payment is so made to the Escrow Agent, the Payment Agent or the Seller Representative, then neither Buyer nor the Surviving Company shall have any further responsibility or liability with respect thereto and such parties shall be entitled to rely conclusively and without independent verification on the Seller Representative, the Escrow Agent or the Payment Agent making further payment to such Securityholder or former holder of Restricted Units, as applicable.

Section 2.8 Payment Procedures.

(a) Prior to the Effective Time, Buyer shall designate PNC Bank N.A., or such other bank or trust company reasonably acceptable to Seller Representative and Buyer to act as payment agent in connection with the Merger (the 'Payment Agent'). Subject to the terms of Section 2.5 and Section 2.9 hereof, at or prior to the Effective Time, Buyer will provide to and shall deposit in trust with, the Payment Agent, an amount in cash equal to the aggregate amount of the Closing Consideration payable to the Securityholders under this Agreement. Until used for that purpose, the funds shall be invested by the

24

Payment Agent, as directed by Buyer, and in accordance with a Payment Agent Agreement, by and between Buyer, the Seller Representative and the Payment Agent, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit D (the 'Payment Agent Agreement') in obligations of, or guaranteed by, the United States of America or obligations of an agency of the United States of America which are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States of America or in deposit accounts or certificates of deposit with commercial banks.

(b) As soon as reasonably practicable after the date hereof, Seller Representative and Buyer shall cause the Payment Agent to mail or otherwise make available to each holder of record of outstanding Units that will be converted pursuant to Section 2.4(b) into the right to receive Closing Consideration, a Letter of Transmittal and such other documents as may reasonably be required by Seller Representative and Buyer (including any required Form W-8 or W-9). Upon delivery of a Letter of Transmittal duly completed and validly executed in accordance with the instructions thereto, and such other documents as may be required pursuant to such instructions, such Securityholder shall be entitled to promptly receive (and in any event within two (2) Business Days after delivery of a completed Letter of Transmittal in accordance with this provision) in exchange therefor a cash amount equal to such Securityholder's portion of the Closing Consideration as set forth opposite such Securityholder's name on the Allocation Schedule without interest; provided, however, that any Securityholder that completes delivery of a Letter of Transmittal and such other documents as may reasonably be required in accordance with this Section 2.8 on or prior to two (2) Business Days prior to the Closing Date shall be paid by the Payment Agent on the Closing Date.

(c) At any time which is more than one (1) year after the Effective Time, the Surviving Company shall be entitled to direct the Payment Agent to deliver to it any funds which had been deposited with the Payment Agent and have not been disbursed in accordance with this Article 2 (including, without limitation, interest and other income received by the Payment Agent in respect of the funds made available to it)and such funds shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, become the property of the Surviving Company and shall be promptly released by the Payment Agent to an account designated by the Surviving Company (and the Seller Representative agrees to reasonably cooperate as necessary to effectuate such transfer). After the funds have been delivered to the Surviving Company, the Securityholders entitled to payment in accordance with this Article 2 shall be entitled to look solely to the Surviving Company as a general creditor (subject to abandoned property, escheat or other similar applicable Laws) for payment of the Closing Consideration, without any interest thereon. Any Closing Consideration remaining unclaimed as of a date which is immediately prior to such time as such amounts would otherwise escheat to or become property of any government entity shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, become the property of the Surviving Company free and clear of any claims or interest of any person previously entitled thereto. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Agreement, neither the Payment Agent nor Buyer, Merger Sub or the Surviving Company shall be liable to a former Securityholder for any amount properly paid to a public official pursuant to any abandoned property, escheat or similar applicable Law.

Section 2.9 Withholding. Each of the Buyer, the Merger Sub, the Escrow Agent, the Payment Agent and/or any other applicable Party required to withhold shall be entitled to deduct and withhold from amounts payable or otherwise deliverable pursuant to this Agreement or in connection with the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including for the avoidance of doubt any payments to the Securityholders, such amounts as are required to be deducted and withheld therefrom under any provision of any applicable Law. To the extent Buyer or Merger Sub intend to withhold any amounts under this agreement, other than amounts (i) for failure to provide applicable form or forms W-9 or W-8 or any successor forms, (ii) for failure of the Company to comply with Section 5.5(i) or (iii) amounts paid to any service provider or employee, then Buyer or Merger Sub shall provide written notice to the Seller Representative five (5) days before withholding such amounts and reasonably cooperate with the Seller Representative to avoid or reduce such withholding obligation. To the extent that such amounts are so deducted or withheld by the applicable withholding agent and paid over to the appropriate Governmental

25

Entity, such amounts shall be treated for all purposes of this Agreement as having been paid to the Person in respect of which such deduction and withholding was made. The Parties agree to cooperate to allow the applicable withholding agent, at its election, to effectuate such withholding by means acceptable to the Buyer Parties, including by paying the applicable portion of the any payment for which such withholding is required to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries and causing such Person to withhold the applicable amounts through its payroll system.

The proceeds of the Debt Financing (both before and after giving effect to any 'flex' provisions contained in the Debt Commitment Letters), will in the aggregate be, together with unrestricted cash of the Buyer as of Closing, sufficient for Buyer to pay the aggregate Closing Consideration and pay all other amounts required to be paid by Buyer in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and the Debt Commitment Letters (including, without limitation, the repayment of indebtedness of the Company and its Subsidiaries contemplated by this Agreement and the payment of all fees, costs and expenses required to be paid by Buyer at Closing in connection with the Transactions and the Debt Commitment Letters) (the amount sufficient to make such payments, the 'Required Amount'). The Debt Commitment Letters are in full force and effect as of the date hereof, and the Debt Commitment Letters constitute valid and binding obligations of Buyer and, to the knowledge of Buyer, the other parties thereto, enforceable against Buyer and, to the knowledge of Buyer, each other party thereto, in accordance with their terms, subject to the General Enforceability Exceptions. As of the date hereof, Buyer has no knowledge that any event has occurred which, with or without notice, lapse of time or both, would or would reasonably be expected to constitute a default or breach under any of the Debt Commitment Letters. Assuming the accuracy of the Company's representations and warranties set forth in this Agreement and performance by the Company of its obligations hereunder, Buyer has no reason to believe that any of the conditions to the Debt Financing will not be satisfied on a timely basis or that the full amount of the Debt Financing necessary to fund the Required Amount will not be made available to Buyer on a timely basis in order to consummate the Merger and the other transactions contemplated hereby. There are no conditions precedent or contingencies to the obligations of the parties under the Debt Commitment Letters (including pursuant to any 'flex' provisions or otherwise) to make the full amount of the Debt Financing necessary to fund the Required Amount available to Buyer on the Closing Date upon the terms set forth therein except as expressly set forth in the Debt Commitment Letters. As of the date hereof, there are no side letters or other agreements, Contracts or arrangements to which Buyer or any of its Affiliates is a party related (directly or indirectly) to the funding or investing, as applicable, of the full amount of the Debt Financing that could affect the conditionality, availability, amount, timing or termination of the Debt Financing other than expressly as set forth in the Debt Commitment Letters. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the obtaining of the Debt Financing, or any Alternative Financing, is not a condition to Closing.

Section 4.8 Solvency. As of the Closing, and after giving effect to all of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and assuming the accuracy of the representations and warranties contained in Article 3, each of Buyer, the Company and its Subsidiaries will be Solvent. For purposes of this Section 4.8, 'Solvent' means that, with respect to any Person and as of any date of determination, (a) the amount of the 'present fair saleable value' of the assets of such Person, will, as of such date, exceed the amount of all 'Liabilities of such Person, contingent or otherwise,' as of such date, as such quoted terms are generally determined in accordance with applicable federal Laws governing determinations of the insolvency of

None of the Parties shall issue any press release or make any such public statement regarding this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby without the prior written consent of the other Parties, except as may be required by applicable Law or listing agreement with or listing rule of a national securities exchange or trading market (in which case, prior to making such disclosure, the disclosing party will, to the extent legally permissible, (i) deliver a draft of such press release or public statement to each other party, and shall give each other party reasonable opportunity to comment thereon prior to such disclosure and (ii) consider in good faith the reasonable comments of such other party); provided, that each of Buyer, Merger Sub, and the Seller Representative shall be entitled to communicate with its and its Affiliates' current, former, future or prospective investors regarding this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereby as part of such Party's fundraising, marketing, information or reporting activities in the ordinary course of business, in each case subject to the existence of customary contractual confidentiality obligations with resect thereto.

Section 5.4 Employment and Benefit Matters.

(a) All employees of the Company or its Subsidiaries as of the day immediately prior to the Closing (the 'Company Employees') shall remain employed by the Company as of the day after the Closing. For the period commencing at the Closing and ending 12 months after the Closing, the Buyer agrees to cause the Surviving Company to maintain (i) base salary, hourly, and/or piece-rate wages which are no less than the base salary, hourly, and/or piece-rate wages provided by the Company or the applicable Subsidiary of the Company immediately prior to the Closing; (ii) target annual bonus opportunities (excluding equity-based compensation and one-time or special bonuses or cash incentives), which are no less than the target annual bonus opportunities (excluding equity-based compensation and one-time or special bonuses or cash incentives) provided by the Company or the applicable Subsidiary of the Company immediately prior to the Closing; and (iii) employee benefits that are no less favorable, in the aggregate, than those provided by the Company or the applicable Subsidiary of the Company immediately prior to the Closing; and (iv) severance benefits, if applicable to the Company Employee prior to the Closing, that are comparable to those provided under the practice, plan or policy in effect for such Company Employee immediately prior to the Closing. After the Closing Date, Buyer shall, and shall cause the Surviving Company and its Subsidiaries to (A) honor all rights to Paid Time Off, including vacation, personal and sick days, accrued but unused by Company Employees prior to the Closing under any benefit plan (collectively, 'Paid Time Off'), and (B) provide the Company Employees with a reasonable opportunity to use Paid Time Off under the Surviving Company's Paid Time Off plans. Buyer shall honor, and shall cause the Surviving Company to honor, in accordance with their terms, all employment agreements between the Company and its Subsidiaries on the one hand and any officer, director or employee, of the Company or such Subsidiary on the other hand, as such agreements are in effect on the day prior to the Closing Date.

(b) Buyer will treat, and cause the applicable benefit plans to treat, the service of the Company Employees attributable to any period before the Closing as service rendered to Buyer or any Subsidiary of Buyer for purposes of eligibility and vesting under Buyer's employee benefit plans, except where credit would result in duplication of benefits (and other than for purposes of determining benefits under any defined benefit plan or vesting of equity-based compensation). Without limiting the foregoing, to the extent that any Company Employee participates in any health or other group welfare benefit plan of Buyer following the Closing, Buyer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to cause (i) any pre-existing conditions or limitations, eligibility waiting periods or required physical examinations under any health or similar welfare plan of Buyer to be waived with respect to the Company Employees and their eligible dependents, to the extent waived under the corresponding plan in which the Company Employee participated immediately prior to the Closing, and (ii) any deductibles paid by Company Employee under any of the Company's or its Subsidiaries' health plans in the plan year in which the Closing occurs to be credited towards deductibles under the health plans of Buyer or any Subsidiary of Buyer.

52

(c) If requested by Buyer, the Company shall take all actions necessary to terminate the Company's 401(k) plan effective at least one (1) day prior to the Closing Date. In connection with such termination, the Company and Buyer agree to use commercially reasonable efforts to: (i) amend their respective 401(k) plans to the extent necessary or required by applicable Law to facilitate the distribution and rollover of the Continuing Employees' 401(k) plan account balances to a 401(k) plan sponsored by Buyer or one of its Subsidiaries; and (ii) take any additional action reasonably required to permit each Continuing Employee who has received an eligible rollover distribution to roll such eligible rollover distribution into a 401(k) plan sponsored by Buyer or one of its Subsidiaries as promptly as reasonably practicable following the Effective Time.

(d) Notwithstanding any provision of this Agreement to the contrary, nothing in this Section 5.4 shall (i) be deemed or construed to be an amendment or other modification of any Company Employee Program or Buyer employee benefit plan, (ii) prevent or restrict in any way the right of the Buyer to terminate reassign, promote or demote any Company Employee (or to cause any of the foregoing actions) at any time following the Closing, or to change (or cause the change of) the title, powers, duties, responsibilities, functions, locations, or terms or conditions of employment or service of any such Company Employees at any time following the Closing, (iii) obligate the Buyer or any of its Affiliates to adopt or maintain any particular plan or program or other compensatory or benefits arrangement at any time or prevent the Buyer or any of its Affiliates from modifying or terminating any such plan, program or other compensatory or benefits arrangement at any time, or (iv) create any third party rights in any current or former employee, director or other service provider of Buyer, the Company or any of their respective affiliates (or any beneficiaries or dependents thereof).

Section 5.5 Tax Matters.

(a) The Seller Representative and the Buyer Parties shall provide each other with such cooperation and information as either of them reasonably may request of the other (and the Buyer and the Company shall cause their respective Affiliates to provide such cooperation and information), subject to Section 5.5(f), in filing any Tax Return, amended Tax Return or claim for refund, determining a Liability for Taxes or a right to a refund of Taxes or participating in or conducting any audit or other proceeding in respect of Taxes. Such cooperation and information shall include providing copies of relevant Tax Returns or portions thereof, together with related work papers and documents relating to rulings or other determinations by Taxing authorities.

(b) All Transfer Taxes shall be borne by Buyer. Buyer and the Company agree to cooperate in the execution and delivery of all instruments and certificates reasonably necessary to minimize the amount of any Transfer Taxes and to enable Buyer and/or the Company to comply with any filing requirements.

(c) Subject to Section 5.5(b), in the case of any Straddle Period, the amount of Taxes (and any refund of Taxes or credits for overpayment of Taxes) allocable to the portion of the Straddle Period ending on the Closing Date shall be deemed (i) in the case of any Tax that is imposed on a periodic basis (such as real or personal property Taxes) to be (A) the amount of such Tax (or refund or credit of such Tax) for the entire period multiplied by (B) a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of calendar days in the portion of the Straddle Period ending on the Closing Date and the denominator of which is the number of calendar days in the entire relevant Straddle Period and (ii) in the case of any Tax (or refund or credit of any Tax) not described in clause (i) above (such as franchise Taxes, payroll or withholding Taxes, Taxes that are based upon or measured by income, receipts or occupancy or imposed in connection with any sale

53

or other transfer or assignment of property (whether real or personal, tangible or intangible)), to be the amount of any such Taxes (or refund or credit of any such Taxes) that would be payable if the taxable year of CB Velocity Midco and its Subsidiaries ended as of the end of the Closing Date and applying Treasury Regulations Section 1.1502-76(b)(1)(ii)(A)(1) (and not the 'next day' rule under Treasury Regulations Section 1.1502-76(b)(1)(ii)(B) or the ratable allocation method under Treasury Regulations Section 1.1502-76(b)(2)(ii) or 1.1502-76(b)(2)(iii)) (and for such purposes in each case, the taxable period of any entity in which such Person holds a beneficial interest, directly or indirectly, shall be deemed to terminate at such time), provided that in all events, any Transactions Deductions shall be allocated to the Pre-Closing Tax Period portion of any Straddle Period to the extent there is at least a more likely than not position supporting such allocation under applicable Law, and provided, further however, that exemptions, allowances or deductions that are calculated on an annual basis (such as the deductions for depreciation and real estate Taxes) will be apportioned between the Pre-Closing Tax Period and the Post-Closing Tax Period in a manner consistent with the methodology described in clause (i) hereof.

(d) The Seller Representative shall cause to be prepared all Pass-Through Income Tax Returns for all Tax periods that end on or prior to the Closing Date, shall provide Buyer with a copy of drafts of such Tax Returns that are filed after the Closing at least ten (10) days prior to the filing thereof for Buyer's review, and the Seller Representative shall consider in good faith any comments provided by Buyer at least five (5) days prior to the filing of such Pass-Through Income Tax Returns. Buyer shall prepare or cause to be prepared all income or other similar Tax Returns of the Company, CB Velocity Midco and any of their Subsidiaries for all Straddle Periods and Pre-Closing Tax Periods that are filed after the Closing other than Pass-Through Income Tax Returns (all such Tax Returns, the 'Buyer-Prepared Tax Returns'). Such Buyer-Prepared Tax Returns shall be prepared in a manner consistent with past practice to the extent permitted by applicable Law; provided, however, that CB Velocity Midco shall elect under Revenue Procedure 2011-29, 2011-18 IRB 746 to treat 70% of any success-based fees as amounts that did not facilitate the transactions described in this Agreement and therefore treat 70% of such costs as deductible on the Buyer-Prepared Tax Returns of CB Velocity Midco for its Tax year that ends on the Closing Date, and shall deduct all other Transaction Deductions on such Tax Return to the extent there is at least a more likely than not position supporting the deduction under applicable Law. Buyer shall provide Seller Representative drafts of the Buyer-Prepared Tax Returns at least fifteen (15) days prior to the filing of such Tax Returns for Seller Representative's review, and Buyer shall consider in good faith any comments provided by Seller Representative at least ten (10) days prior to the filing of such Buyer-Prepared Tax Returns. Buyer shall cause any Buyer-Prepared Tax Returns prepared and finalized hereunder to be timely filed.

(e) The Seller Representative shall have the right, at its own expense, to control any audit, litigation or other proceeding with respect to Pass-Through Income Tax Returns (a 'Pre-Closing Tax Contest'); provided, however, that the Seller Representative shall not settle or compromise any such Pre-Closing Tax Contest without Buyer's prior written consent (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed). The Seller Representative and Buyer and their respective Affiliates shall promptly notify each other upon receipt by such party of written notice of any Pre-Closing Tax Contest, provided that failure to so notify the other party of any Pre-Closing Tax Contest shall not relieve such other party of any liability with respect to such Pre-Closing Tax Contest except to the extent such party was actually prejudiced as a result thereof.

(f) Without the prior written consent of the Seller Representative, and not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed, none of the Buyer Parties, the Surviving Company, CB Velocity Midco or any of their respective Affiliates shall make or change any Tax election (other than an election to 'push out' imputed underpayments under Section 6226 of the Code), adopt or change any accounting method, file any Tax Return (including amended Tax Returns), surrender any right to claim a refund of Taxes or enter into any voluntary disclosure agreement or similar arrangement with a

54

Governmental Entity, if such election, adoption, change, amendment or surrender could reasonably be expected to increase the Taxes of the Securityholders or their respective direct or indirect owners, or (ii) require the Securityholders or their respective direct or indirect owners to have to file amended Tax Returns. The Company shall make a 'push out' election pursuant to Section 6226 of the Code for all Pre-Closing Tax Periods.

(g) For the portion of the Closing Date after the time of Closing, other than transactions expressly contemplated hereby, Buyer shall cause the Company and its Subsidiaries to carry on its business only in the ordinary course in the same manner as heretofore conducted.

(h) Neither Buyer or Merger Sub nor any of their respective Affiliates shall make an election under Section 338 or 336(e) of the Code (or any comparable provision of foreign, state or local Law) in respect of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

(i) The Company shall provide Buyer with a certificate in accordance with Treasury Regulation Sections 1.1445-11T(d)(2) and 1.1446(f)-2 certifying that the transactions contemplated by this Agreement are exempt from withholding under Sections 1445 and 1446(f) of the Code. Each Securityholder that is a U.S. Person shall provide Buyer with a duly executed IRS Form W-9.

(j) For U.S. federal and all applicable state income Tax purposes, the Parties agree that the Merger shall be treated (from the Securityholders' perspective) as a purchase of the partnership interests of the Company by the Buyer from the Securityholders and (from the Buyer's perspective) as a taxable acquisition of the assets of the Company, consistent with the analysis and holding applicable to Situation 2 of Revenue Ruling 99-6, 1999-1 C.B. 432 and that CB Velocity Midco's tax year shall terminate at the end of the Closing Date by joining Buyer's consolidated group as of the day immediately following the Closing Date. All Parties shall take all positions for Tax purposes and shall file all Tax Returns consistent therewith.

Subject to applicable Law, in advance and to the extent practicable, each of Buyer or the Company, as the case may be, will consult the other on all the information relating to Buyer or the Company, as the case may be, and any of their respective Subsidiaries that appear in any filing made with, or written materials submitted to, any third party and/or any Governmental Entity in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and shall incorporate all comments reasonably proposed by Buyer or the Company, as the case may be; provided, however, that if review of any information would be material in connection with any second request (or similar process) such information shall be provided solely to those individuals acting as outside antitrust counsel for the other Parties provided that such counsel shall not disclose such information to such other Parties and shall enter into a joint defense agreement with the providing Party. In addition, except as may be prohibited by any Governmental Entity or by any applicable Law, in connection with any such request, litigation, hearing, examination or Action with respect to the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, each Party will permit authorized representatives of the other Party to be present at each meeting, conference or teleconference relating to such request, litigation, hearing, examination or Action and to have access to and be consulted in connection with any document, opinion or proposal made or submitted to any Governmental Entity in connection with such request, litigation, hearing, examination or Action. Buyer shall control the strategy for securing any required approvals and clearances under any Antitrust Law; provided, however, that Buyer shall consider in good faith the views of the Company and its counsel in connection therewith.

(d) In furtherance and not in limitation of the foregoing, Buyer shall use its reasonable best efforts to avoid, eliminate or resolve each and every impediment and obtain all clearances, consents, approvals and waivers under Antitrust Laws that may be required by any Governmental Entity, so as to enable the Parties to consummate the transactions contemplated by this Agreement as soon as practicable (and in any event no later than three (3) Business Days prior to the Outside Date), and to ensure that no Governmental Entity with the authority to clear, authorize or otherwise approve consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, fails to do so as promptly as practicable and in any event no later than three (3) Business Days prior to the Outside Date; provided, however, that in the exercise of its

56

reasonable best efforts, Buyer is not required to undertake any of the following efforts: (i) committing to or effecting, by consent decree, hold separate orders, trust, or otherwise, the sale, license, transfer, assignment or other disposition of assets or businesses of Buyer or the Company or their respective Subsidiaries, (ii) terminating, relinquishing, modifying, transferring, assigning, restructuring, or waiving existing agreements, collaborations, relationships, ventures, contractual rights, obligations or other arrangements of Buyer or the Company or their respective Subsidiaries and (iii) creating or consenting to create any relationships, ventures, contractual rights, obligations, behavioral undertakings or other arrangements of Buyer or the Company or their respective Subsidiaries (and, in each case, to enter, or offer to enter, into agreements and stipulate to the entry of an order or decree or file appropriate applications with any Governmental Entity in connection with any of the foregoing and in the case of actions by or with respect to the Company or its Subsidiaries or its or their businesses or assets, by consenting to such action by the Company).

(e) In the event that any litigation or other administrative or judicial action or Action is commenced challenging the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and such litigation, action or proceeding seeks, or would reasonably be expected to seek, to prevent consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, Buyer shall take any and all action to contest any such litigation, action or proceeding and each of the Company and Buyer shall cooperate with each other and use its respective reasonable best efforts to contest any such litigation, action or proceeding and to have vacated, lifted, reversed or overturned any decree, judgment, injunction or other order, whether temporary, preliminary or permanent, that is in effect and that prohibits, prevents or restricts consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

(f) Buyer shall not, and Buyer shall not permit any of its Subsidiaries or Affiliates to, acquire or agree to acquire any rights, assets, business, Person or division thereof (through acquisition, license, joint venture, collaboration or otherwise), if such acquisition, would reasonably be expected to increase the risk of not obtaining any applicable clearance, consent, approval or waiver under Antitrust Laws with respect to any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

(g) Following the date hereof, the Company shall use commercially reasonable efforts to obtain the consent or waiver of each of the counterparties to the Significant Contracts set forth on Section 5.6(g) Section 3.16 of the Company Disclosure Schedule that are required as a result of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, with such consents in a form and substance reasonably acceptable to Buyer.

Section 5.7 Confidentiality.

(a) Each of the Buyer Parties shall hold, and shall cause each of their respective Affiliates, directors, officers, partners, members, managers, trustees, employees, agents and advisors (collectively, the 'Representatives') to hold, in confidence all documents and information furnished to it by or on behalf of any other Party in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement pursuant to the terms of the letter agreement, dated as of December 15, 2020, by among Buyer and CB Velocity Holdings, LLC (the 'Confidentiality Agreement'). Notwithstanding anything set forth in the Confidentiality Agreement, the Parties hereby agree that the Confidentiality Agreement shall terminate and be of no further force and effect at the Effective Time.

Section 5.8 Director and Officer Liability, Indemnification and Insurance.

(a) For a period of six (6) years after the Closing Date, Buyer and the Company shall, to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law, indemnify and hold harmless the present and former directors, officers, and managers of the Company and each of its Subsidiaries (each, an 'Insured Party') against all costs and expenses (including attorneys' fees), judgments, fines, losses, claims, damages, Liabilities and settlement amounts paid in connection with any Action or investigation based on the fact that such individual is or was a director, officer, or manager of the Company or any of its Subsidiaries and arising out of or pertaining to any action or omission occurring at or prior to the Closing (including the transactions contemplated by this Agreement) and shall pay any expenses in advance of the final disposition of such action or proceeding to each Insured Party to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law, upon receipt from the Insured Party for whom expenses are paid of any undertaking to repay such amounts required under applicable Law. In the event of any such Action or investigation, (i) Buyer and the Company shall pay the reasonable fees and expenses of counsel selected by the Insured Parties, promptly after statements therefor are received and (ii) Buyer and the Company shall (and shall cause the Subsidiaries of the Company to) cooperate in the defense of any such matter; provided, that none of the Buyer or the Company shall be liable for any settlement effected without its prior written consent (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed); provided, further, that none of Buyer or the Company shall be obligated pursuant to this Section 5.8(a) to pay the fees and expenses of more than one counsel for all Insured Parties per jurisdiction in any single Action or investigation unless a conflict of interest precludes the effective representation of more than one Insured Party with respect to the applicable Action or investigation. Buyer and the Company hereby acknowledge that present and former directors, officers and managers of the Insured Parties may have certain rights to indemnification, advancement of expenses and/or insurance other than from the Buyer and the Company. Buyer and the Company hereby agree that, for a period of six (6) years after the Closing Date, they are the indemnitors of first resort (i.e., their obligations to the Insured Parties are primary and any obligation of any secondary indemnitors to advance expenses or to provide indemnification for the same expenses or Liabilities incurred by the Insured Parties are secondary). For a period of at least six (6) years after the Closing Date, the Company shall include provisions in its Organizational Documents that provide for the indemnification of its directors, officers and managers to the fullest extent permitted under applicable Law and on terms no less favorable than the current terms set forth in the Organizational Documents of the Company as in effect on the date of this Agreement.

(b) At or prior to the Closing, the Company shall either (i) purchase directors', managers' and officers' Liability insurance coverage or (ii) a 'tail' insurance policy, in each case, for the directors and officers of the Company and its Subsidiaries immediately prior to the Closing Date, which shall provide such directors, managers and officers with coverage for six (6) years following the Closing of not less than the existing coverage under, and have other terms not materially less favorable on the whole to, the insured Persons than the directors', managers' and officers' Liability insurance coverage presently maintained by the Company and its Subsidiaries. Buyer shall cause the Company and each of its Subsidiaries to refrain from taking any act that would cause such coverage to cease to remain in full force and effect.

(c) Each Insured Party to whom this Section 5.8 applies shall be third party beneficiaries of this Section 5.8. The provisions of this Section 5.8 are intended to be for the benefit of each Insured Party and his heirs. The obligations under this Section 5.8 shall not be terminated or modified in such a manner as to adversely affect any such Insured Party without his or her written consent.

58

(d) After the Closing, in the event Buyer, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries (i) consolidates with or merges into any other Person and shall not be the continuing or surviving corporation or entity of such consolidation or merger, or (ii) transfers or conveys all or substantially all of its properties and assets to any Person, then, and in each such case, to the extent necessary, proper provision shall be made so that the successors and assigns of Buyer, the Company or its applicable Subsidiaries assume the obligations set forth in this Section 5.8.

Section 5.9 Retention of Records. After the Closing Date, Buyer and the Company shall retain those Records of the Company and its Subsidiaries delivered to Buyer or otherwise held by the Company or any of its Subsidiaries in accordance with Buyer's document retention policies for a period of seven (7) years from the Closing Date. During such period, Buyer also shall provide the Seller Representative and its representatives reasonable access thereto, during normal business hours and on at least five (5) Business Days' prior written notice, as may be reasonably requested by any former Securityholder, in each case, at the sole cost and expense of such Securityholder and only to the extent necessary in connection with preparing financial statements, as required pursuant to Error! Reference source not found. or to respond to any non-Tax proceeding or inquiry by a Governmental Entity; provided, that, in any case, any such access shall not unreasonably interfere with the conduct of the business of Buyer or any of its Affiliates; provided, further, that neither Buyer nor the Company shall be required to provide access to any information that based on advice of the Company's or Buyer's counsel, would violate applicable Law or fiduciary standards, or would destroy attorney client privilege.

Section 5.10 Notification of Certain Matters. Between the date of this Agreement and the earlier of the date of termination of this Agreement or the Closing Date, each of the Company and Buyer shall within three (3) Business Days notify the other in writing of any occurrence or failure to occur of any event or the discovery of any information, which occurrence, failure or discovery would give rise to the failure of the condition set forth in Article 6 with respect to an occurrence, failure or discovery by the Company or Article 7 with respect to an occurrence, failure or discovery by the Buyer.

Section 5.11 Requisite Member Consent. The Company will take all action necessary in accordance with the Act and the Company LLC Agreement to obtain approval of or consent to the Merger, this Agreement and the transactions contemplated hereunder from each of the Securityholders required to obtain the Requisite Member Consent as promptly as possible, but in any event no later than 24 hours after the time of execution and delivery of this Agreement by all parties hereto.

Section 5.12 Section 280G. If any Person who is a 'disqualified individual' (within the meaning of Section 280G of the Code and the Department of Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder) with respect to the Company or any of its Subsidiaries may receive any payment(s) or benefit(s) that could constitute parachute payments under Section 280G of the Code in connection with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, then: (a) the Company shall use reasonable commercial efforts to obtain and deliver to Buyer a Parachute Payment Waiver from each such 'disqualified individual'; and (b) as soon as practicable following the delivery of the Parachute Payment Waivers (if any) to Buyer, the Company shall prepare and distribute to the Securityholders that are required to receive a disclosure statement under Section 280G of the Code, a disclosure statement describing all potential parachute payments and benefits that may be received by such disqualified individual(s) and shall submit such payments to such Securityholders for approval, in each case, in accordance with the requirements of Section 280G(b)(5)(B) of the Code and the Department of Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder, such that, if approved by the requisite majority of the Securityholders that have the right to vote on such payments under Section 280G of the Code, such payments and benefits shall not be deemed to be 'parachute payments' under Section 280G of the Code (the foregoing actions, a '280G Vote'). Prior to the Closing, if a 280G Vote is required, the Company shall deliver to Buyer evidence reasonably satisfactory to Buyer, (i) that a 280G Vote was solicited in conformance with Section 280G of the Code, and the requisite shareholder approval

59

was obtained with respect to any payments and/or benefits that were subject to the Company shareholder vote (the 'Section 280G Approval') or (ii) that the Section 280G Approval was not obtained and as a consequence, pursuant to the Parachute Payment Waiver executed by the applicable disqualified individual, such 'parachute payments' shall not be made or provided. For the avoidance of doubt, this Section 5.12 will not be deemed breached by reason of (x) the refusal of a disqualified individual to execute a waiver as discussed herein or (y) any Buyer Arrangement, unless such Buyer Arrangement (or the material terms thereof, including values) is provided to the Company at least 10 Business Days prior to the Closing. The form of the Parachute Payment Waiver, the disclosure statement, any other materials to be submitted to the Securityholders in connection with the Section 280G Approval and the calculations related to the foregoing (the 'Section 280G Soliciting Materials') shall be subject to advance review and approval by Buyer, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.

Section 5.13 Additional Financial Statements. Prior to the Closing, to the extent that the Closing has not been consummated on or prior to August 13, 2021, the Company shall deliver to Buyer the unaudited consolidated balance sheet of the Company and its Subsidiaries as of June 30, 2021, and the related statement of operations, of cash flows and of members' equity for the quarter then ended (the 'Additional Financial Statements'). The Additional Financial Statements shall be prepared in accordance with GAAP applied on a consistent basis (except changes required by GAAP and specifically noted therein), and present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position and the results of operations of the Company and its Subsidiaries as of June 30, 2021 and for the respective period covered, except for year-end adjustments and footnotes required by GAAP (none of which if presented would materially differ from those presented in the audited Financial Statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020). The Additional Financial Statements shall be derived from and prepared in accordance with the books of account and other financial records of the Company and its Subsidiaries.

Section 5.14 Termination of Interest Rate Instruments. At Closing, the Company and its Subsidiaries shall terminate all interest rate instruments then in effect without any further obligation binding on, or liability of, the Company or any of its Subsidiaries.

Section 5.15 Financing.

(a) Buyer shall use, and shall cause its Affiliates and each of its and their respective Representatives to use, their reasonable best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions and to do, or cause to be done, all things reasonably necessary, proper or advisable to arrange, obtain and consummate the Debt Financing upon the terms and subject only to the conditions (including, to the extent required, the full exercise of any 'flex' provisions) expressly set forth in the Debt Commitment Letters, including using reasonable best efforts (i) to maintain in force and effect the Debt Commitment Letters in accordance with the terms thereof until the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, (ii) to negotiate, enter into and deliver definitive agreements with respect to the Debt Financing (collectively, the 'Debt Financing Agreements') upon the terms and subject only to the conditions expressly set forth in the Debt Commitment Letters (including any applicable 'flex' provisions) and further subject to any amendments, modifications or supplements thereto, or replacements or waivers thereof, in each case, not prohibited by this Agreement, (iii) to satisfy on a timely basis (but in any event, at or prior to Closing) all conditions to the funding of the full amount of the Debt Financing that are within Buyer's control, and (iv) to enforce its rights under or with respect to the Debt Commitment Letters and the Debt Financing Agreements.

(b) Buyer shall not permit any amendment, supplement or other modification to, or grant any waiver of any terms under, the Debt Commitment Letters, in each case without the prior written consent of the Company (not to be unreasonably withheld, conditioned, or delayed), if such amendment, supplement, or other modification or waiver would or would reasonably be expected to (A) reduce the aggregate amount of the Debt Financing (including by increasing the amount of fees to be paid or original

60

issue discount) to an amount that would be less than the amount necessary to fund the Required Amount, (B) impose new or additional conditions to the funding of the full amount of the Debt Financing on the Closing Date (or otherwise expand or modify any existing condition to the funding of the Debt Financing set forth in the Debt Commitment Letters) in a manner that would adversely impact or delay the ability of Buyer to consummate the Closing or the Debt Financing, or (C) (i) adversely impact or delay the ability of Buyer to consummate the Closing or the Debt Financing, or (ii) adversely impact the ability of Buyer to enforce its rights under the Debt Commitment Letters or the Debt Financing Agreements; provided that Buyer may amend, supplement, replace, substitute or modify the Debt Commitment Letters to the extent not prohibited by this Section 5.15(b) (including to add additional agents, co-agents, lenders, lead arrangers, joint bookrunners, syndication agents, managers or similar entities that have not executed such Debt Commitment Letters as of the date hereof, together with any conforming or ministerial changes related thereto). Buyer shall deliver to the Company copies of any amendment, supplement or other modification, or waiver of any terms under, to the Debt Commitment Letters, promptly (and in any event within two Business Days) following receipt. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Section 5.15, Buyer may terminate or reduce the Debt Commitment Letters to the extent that Buyer has acquired Alternative Financing, together with the remaining amount of the Debt Financing, in an amount sufficient to pay the Required Amount on the Closing Date provided that Buyer shall give two (2) Business Days' notice to the Company prior to such termination.

(c) Upon reasonable written request of the Company, Buyer shall keep the Company informed on a reasonably current basis in reasonable detail of the status of its efforts to arrange the Debt Financing or any Alternative Financing; provided, however, that nothing in this sentence shall require Buyer to disclose any information that is legally privileged or the disclosure of which would result in the breach of any of Buyer's confidentiality obligations set forth in the Debt Commitment Letters (as in effect on the date hereof). Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Buyer shall give the Company prompt written notice (and in any event within two business days following becoming aware thereof) (w) of any actual or alleged breach or default (or any event or circumstance that, with or without notice, lapse of time or both, could reasonably be expected to give rise to any breach or default) by Buyer, or to the knowledge of Buyer, any other person party to any of the Debt Commitment Letters or the Debt Financing Agreements, (x) of the receipt of any written notice or other written communication from any Debt Financing Source with respect to any actual or alleged breach, default, termination or repudiation by any party to any of the Debt Commitment Letters or any Debt Financing Agreement or any provisions of the Debt Commitment Letters or any Debt Financing Agreements (including any actual withdrawal, termination or any material change in the terms of (including the amount of) the Debt Financing), (y) of any material dispute or disagreement between or among the parties to any of the Debt Commitment Letters or the Debt Financing Agreements with respect to the obligation to fund the Debt Financing or the amount of the Debt Financing to be funded at Closing, or (z) if any time for any reason Buyer believes in good faith that it will not be able to (or is not reasonably likely to be able to) obtain, all or any portion of the Debt Financing upon the terms and subject only to the conditions expressly set forth in the Debt Commitment Letters in the manner or from the sources contemplated by any of the Debt Commitment Letters or the Debt Financing Agreements. As soon as reasonably practicable, but in any event within two (2) business day of the date the Company delivers to Buyer a written request therefor, Buyer shall provide any information reasonably requested by the Company relating to any circumstance referred to in clause (w), (x), (y) or (z) of the immediately preceding sentence or the status of the Debt Financing.

(d) At Buyer's option or if any portion of the Debt Financing otherwise becomes unavailable, and such portion is required to fund the Required Amount on the Closing Date, Buyer shall, and shall cause its Affiliates to, use their reasonable best efforts to take, or cause to be taken, all actions and to do, or cause to be done, all things necessary, proper or advisable to arrange, obtain and consummate, at its sole expense, in replacement thereof alternative debt or equity financing from the same or alternative sources in an amount that is sufficient to fund the Required Amount as promptly as reasonably practicable

61

following the occurrence of such event (the 'Alternative Financing'). If the Alternative Financing consists of debt financing, then any reference in this Agreement to (1) the 'Debt Financing' shall include any such Alternative Financing, (2) the 'Debt Commitment Letters' shall include the commitment letters and the corresponding fee letter with respect to any such Alternative Financing, (3) the 'Debt Financing Agreements' shall include the definitive agreements with respect to any such Alternative Financing and (4) the 'Debt Financing Sources' shall include the financing institutions contemplated to provide any such Alternative Financing. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Agreement, nothing contained in this Section 5.15(d) shall require, and in no event shall the reasonable best efforts of Buyer be deemed or construed to require, Buyer to, if the Alternative Financing consistent of debt financing, pay any fees or any interest rates applicable to the Debt Financing in excess of those contemplated by the Debt Commitment Letters (including the flex provisions), or agree to terms (including the flex provisions) that are less favorable, taken as a whole, to Buyer than the terms contemplated by the Debt Commitment Letters (determined after giving effect to all amendments and other modifications permitted pursuant to the 'market flex' provisions of the Debt Commitment Letters as if such amendments and other modifications had been implemented to the maximum extent permitted thereunder) (in either case, whether to secure waiver of any conditions contained therein or otherwise). Buyer shall deliver to the Company true, correct and complete copies of all agreements related to such Alternative Financing (including commitment letters, engagement letters, side letters and fee letters (subject to customary redaction of fee amounts and other commercially sensitive economic terms, so long as such redactions do not extend to any terms that could affect the conditionality, availability, amount, timing or termination of any such Alternative Financing)) promptly (and in any event within two business days) following execution thereof. Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the obtaining of the Financing, or any Alternative Financing, is not a condition to Closing.

(d) Indemnification of Seller Representative; Limitations of Liability. The Seller Representative shall be indemnified by the Securityholders for, and shall be held harmless against any loss, Liability or expense incurred by the Seller Representative or any of its Affiliates and any of their respective managers, directors, officers, employees, agents, members, partners, stockholders, consultants, attorneys, accountants, advisors, brokers, representatives or controlling Persons, in each case, relating to the Seller Representative's conduct as Seller Representative, other than losses, Liabilities or expenses that have been

(f) Reasonable Reliance. In the performance of its duties hereunder, the Seller Representative shall be entitled to (i) rely upon any document or instrument reasonably believed to be genuine, accurate as to content and signed by any Securityholder or any Party and (ii) assume that any Person purporting to give any notice in accordance with the provisions hereof has been duly authorized to do so. The Securityholders agree that Buyer, Merger Sub and the Surviving Company shall be entitled to rely exclusively upon all actions taken or omitted to be taken by the Seller Representative under this Agreement and the other Transaction Documents entered into or delivered in connection with the transactions contemplated hereby and thereby.

(g) Removal of Seller Representative; Authority of Seller Representative. A majority in interest of the Securityholders, voting together as a single class, shall have the right at any time to remove the then-acting Seller Representative and to appoint a successor Seller Representative; provided, however, that neither such removal of the then acting Seller Representative nor such appointment of a successor Seller Representative shall be effective until the delivery to Buyer of executed counterparts of a writing signed by such majority in interest of the Securityholders with respect to such removal and appointment, together with an acknowledgement signed by the successor Seller Representative appointed in such writing that he, she or it accepts the responsibility of successor Seller Representative and agrees to perform and be bound by all of the provisions of this Agreement applicable to the Seller Representative.

The Company and the Seller Representative will, at least three (3) Business Days prior to the Closing Date, direct the Buyer that on the Closing Date an amount equal to the Seller Representative Holdback Amount shall be paid by, or on behalf of, the Securityholders to the Seller Representative as designated in such notice, as a fund for the fees and expenses of the Seller Representative incurred in connection with this Agreement (the 'Seller Representative Holdback Account').

(ii) The Seller Representative will be entitled to full reimbursement for all expenses, disbursements and advances (including service fees and disbursements of its counsel, experts, advisors, consultants, agents or other representatives, including Affiliates of the Seller Representative) incurred by or on behalf of the Seller Representative in such capacity from the Seller Representative Holdback Account in accordance with the terms of this Agreement and the Seller Representative may make such expenditures, in its sole discretion, to fund closing events, associated travel and other similar or related expenses, including by reimbursing its Affiliates for such expenses, out of the Seller Representative Holdback Amount. The Seller Representative Holdback Account need not be invested and shall accrue no interest. The Securityholders shall not receive interest or other earnings on the Seller Representative Holdback Amount and, by virtue of the adoption of this Agreement, irrevocably transfer and assign to the Seller Representative any ownership right that they may have in any interest that may accrue on funds held in the Seller Representative Holdback Account. In furtherance of the foregoing, notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, the Seller Representative shall have the power and authority to set aside and retain additional funds paid to or received by it, or direct payment of additional funds to be paid to the Securityholders pursuant to this Agreement at the Closing or thereafter (including to establish such reserves as the Seller Representative determines in good faith to be appropriate for such costs and expenses that are not then known or determinable). To the extent that the amount included in the Seller Representative Holdback Account exceeds such expenses, disbursements or advances, the Seller Representative will, at such time as it deems reasonable in its sole discretion, pay such excess to the Payment Agent for further distribution to the Securityholders in accordance with their respective portions set forth in the Allocation Schedule. Buyer and Merger Sub's sole obligation to the Securityholders with respect to the Seller Representative Holdback Amount shall be Buyer's obligation to pay the Seller Representative Holdback Amount to the Seller Representative in accordance with Section 2.5(d). None of Buyer or any of its Affiliates shall have any Liability with respect to the use by the Seller Representative of any amounts in the Seller Representative Holdback Account.

(iii) For U.S. federal income and other applicable Tax purposes, the Seller Representative Holdback Amount shall be treated as having been received by the Securityholders and voluntarily set aside at the time of the Closing.

74

Agreement and (b) the Company makes no representation or warranty to Buyer or Merger Sub with respect to (i) any projections, estimates or budgets heretofore Delivered to or made available to Buyer, Merger Sub or their respective Representatives of future revenues, expenses or expenditures or future results of operations of the Company, or, (ii) except as expressly covered by a representation and warranty contained in Article 3 or any certificate delivered pursuant to Section 6.4(a) or the other Transaction Documents, any other information or documents (financial or otherwise) made available to Buyer, Merger Sub or their respective counsel, accountants or advisors with respect to the Company.
